But first: This is so cool. See what the partnership of the New York Times and Google Cloud can do to illuminate photos and history.
Even more fun!
A few days before the election, Dash Katz’s Catholic grandmother was — as you’ll see — willing to talk about anything but politics. Herewith a 4-minute abridgment of their exceptionally human 37-minute conversation: “What It Took To Flip My 90-Year-Old Grandma Blue.” Where did this young man find the patience? Hats off to him — […]
But before I get to that, a few other things . . .
First (in case you own it):
GLDD: Momentum Builds. Well — finally. I’ve written about this every so often for ever. Like here in 2006, when GLDD was ALBA warrants with a different symbol. (We actually made good money on those warrants.) And […]
Okay, so we won the House, which was the main thing.
Like a pass/fail course (or the bar exam, for you elitist snobs) — we passed.
There were bonuses, too. We flipped 7 governorships! We flipped 6 state legislative chambers! We broke 4 Republican supermajorities! We flipped 4 attorneys general!
I don’t want to talk […]
My Mail Chimp postman comes just once a day, a little after midnight, so I’m having to post this with lots of results yet to come in.
But Gwen — the nonvoting mom you met last week — voted!
When I heard that, I had a feeling it could be a good night . […]
A praytheist is an atheist who prays anyway.
I am one.
And I love Jesus.
I’m quite sure he never walked on water; but equally sure he preached love, justice, and compassion, which may be even more terrific.
So I’m praytheing that everyone who cares about love, justice, and compassion will vote today* . . […]
I’m not sure it’s technically legal for me to bribe you this way, but if you vote Democrat tomorrow, I will add a free year’s free delivery to your subscription.
Who can turn down a deal like that?
How else would you have known about stocks like FANH or that dryer lint is […]
Sorry about yesterday’s typos, corrected below. Plus this just in from Ed Costello: “Great idea on texting. I’ve been using WhenWeAllVote.org for a week and the response % is really good. Please give them a boost, if you can. Vote Blue, No Matter Who (this time only). And help others vote, too.”
And now, without […]
First, some actions you can still take:
Text encouragement to voters you don’t know with NextGen’s Blue Wave, Resistance Labs, MoveOn.org, or Build the Wave. Text encouragement to voters you don’t know with VoteWithMe. “If you give the app permission to access your phone contacts,” writes Brian Gatens, who tried it, “it will sync […]
Meet the Evangelicals stumping for Democrats.
Specifically, the Vote Common Good tour, a “rolling revival-cum-hootenanny performed in churches, city parks, pubs and parking lots, replete with klieg lights, backdrop banners and a portable stage pulled from a pickup truck.”
. . . For two weeks this group of musicians, […]
